Hi it's me again. I'm looking for some advice. I've been under the weather for the last two months. I had a chest infection that led to pleurisy and then I had an eyelid cyst that also got infected and made the side of my face swell so much that I had to take my weekly shift of work while I got the infection under don't. It just seems that once o get one thing better something else rears its ugly head. I work as a home support assistant for the local council but these infections are now making my work life hard. After having a really bad chest infection last October which my go put me of work for a week I was called into work and given a disciplinary and a written warning and told i was not allowed to be off on sick leave for 9 months. . Now ive recieved another letter to go for another disiplnary hearing as i was off worj for 4 days last week when my face and eye were swollen. . I dont feel my work are very helpfull concerning my condition. They say they want to help but when you are working with people who have infections it's more than likely that you the carer will pick it up especially when you yourself have copd and pick up everything going. How can i resolve this . I love my job been a community assistant for 5 years now bit I'm worried that my health is going to keep getting in the way of it. Any ideas?
